I just got a large mouth bass from TASCO two days ago and thought I'd share my experience and opinion on their product and service. I was swamped this winter, so I decided to order this reproduction "customer ready" so I wouldn't have to prep the form and paint it. They charge $15.95 per inch for this product/service. It took a little over two months for the fish to arrive. It came well packed and undamaged with a shipping charge of $28. My profit margin on this item is very small. Unfortunately the quality of workmanship and paint job on the fish was sub par in my opinion. For starters they put a cheap, .15 cent brass hanger on it installed in such a way that the fish hangs crooked, so that will need to be replaced/remedied. The back of the fish was left with large holes, chipped paint and generally very unprofessionally finished. I would expect the wall side of the fish to be at least painted one color and finished in such a way that it looked neat with an appropriate hanger. I will have to fill the holes and repaint the back of the fish. The show side of the fish was painted half way decent, but they applies the gloss top coat sporadically missing some spots and splattering the finish on in thinly in others spots. I will have to apply a good gloss coat to not only make it look better but to protect the paint. I also feel it is important gloss over the back of a fish to to protect that paint otherwise it will chip off easily as it is now. I'm not even going to get into general paint job of the fish as I'll let you folks be the judge of that. I contacted TASCOs customer service and they requested photos. They later called me back and said that the fish was finished to their regular standards and methods. They even said that that that cheap brass hanger is what their customers request. As for the back of the fish and the missing gloss; they said it was fine. So they made no adjustment to the pricing or offer me anything for the time/materials I will have to spend finishing the bass so it is presentable to my client. I told them that I would not be doing business with them again and also said I would post this review which they were fine with.
